Wachenheim’s investment process begins by the assumption that a low-priced stock is that way because of problems in the business which the market believes to be permanent (or at least long term). The question then becomes whether the market is correct- in which case the stock should be discarded as a potential investment- or if in fact the problems are short term in nature. Sometimes an entire industry or industry segment is afflicted by a short-term problem and so Greenhaven can then capitalize even further by investing in a larger theme.
